The shotei database is a wonderful tool and I use it often.
With that said, I know the host of the site is working on other projects and the seal finder is not an exhaustive resource. It's an excellent resource but the ability to track every artist's seals as well as publisher is difficult. Add to it each seal needs verification to be included and you quickly accept the limitations.
So, that you can't identify these through the seal finder is not a reason to exclude any artist. You're obviously on the right track.
With that said, I think the best route to find the info you want is to contact Uchida and see if these works are in their catalog. These have a 50s feel to them IMHO
Hope this helps
